Assessing for Prior Learning/Welcome
Welcome and Introductions
Welcome to Assessing for Prior Learning.(A4PL)
Kia ora, I'm Heather Day the course coordinator and I hope this course provides you with understandings into the principles and practices of the recognition of prior learning (RPL) from the perspective of both an assessor and a candidate. You will get the opportunity to explore how evidence can be gathered and presented and how sound assessment decisions are made.
The schedule found under the course modules tab is for formal learners. This course is is designed as a self paced independent learning package (of estimated 8 to 10 week duration on average) with facilitated support.
Informal learners are welcome to either follow the schedule in your own time or dip into the resources and play with the information shared in the hope that it adds to your own learning.
